Leland Wilson, Living with Wonder

 Dr. Curtis Bowman believed in faith healing, but you had to 
talk with him a while to understand what he meant by faith healing.
A person related to a person about to have surgery asked the doctor
if he prayed before surgery.
"What do you mean?" asked Dr. Bowman.
"I mean do you ask God to guide your hand as you do surgery?"
Dr. Bowman came back, "Do you think God would do that?  Do you
think God would guide my hand so that I could not make a mistake?"
"Yes," the person replied.
"Then you take the knife and let God guide you."
He did not discount prayer, but neither did he believe that God
would do his work for him. He believed that God intended him
to use and develop his knowledge and abilities.
